Who remembers the Cold War, "Mr. Gorbachev - Tear down this wall", and seeing it come down?
I want to tackle Dostoyevsky's Demons and was wondering if anyone would want to join in a read and discuss club? I am looking at slow and leisurely pace as I've got a lot going on and can't commit too much time each day.
Look forward to being a part of this group!
I think the fact that so few girls learn the game let alone stick with it is the main reason we haven't yet had a Bobbi Fischer.
My daughter is almost 18 and has been playing since she was 5. I don't think we've been to a tournament that had 5 girls and when it was more than my daughters, it was typically a girl whose brother played and she entered to have something to do for nine hours.
She has been top board at her high school for all three years and the school has won three straight division titles, never won one before she arrived.
No doubt in my mind girls can play, most don't. Very similar to the lack of women in STEM.

I live in Nazareth, PA with my wife, Jill, and daughters Alexa and Olivia. My wife and I both grew up in the community and we enjoy living in the borough being able to walk through town to the library and our many parks.
We have a German Shepherd, Arizona and previously had a Lab/Shepherd mix, Nittany.
Our family enjoys spending time together playing board games, cooking/grilling, and making. I like woodworking projects and the girls are very good with crafts, knitting (my daughter makes scarves including Alpaca and donates a portion of proceeds to our local food bank), stitching, drawing, painting, etc.
We are also avid readers and writers.
